Fun geography quiz

I got this in an email this morning, and it might just be me but I thought it was quite fun. And hey, it might be an alternative to all the arguments that seem to be breaking out all over FYM. So go and try some of these quizzes and don't forget to share your results here when you're done. Good luck.

That was for babies. I got them all right, except I didn't click far enough north for the Arctic Ocean and it counted me wrong the first time. But I knew it.

I got a perfect score also. I have been obsessed with maps since I was a child. I used to draw maps of the Byzantine Empire and other historical maps.

Ack, I'm such an idiot, I posted the wrong link that time. There are about six or seven other quizzes you can take (there's one for Europe, Africa, Asia, Middle East, South America, etc).

Try this link: http://www.lizardpoint.com/fun/geoquiz/index.html

I got a perfect score for Europe, but screwed up on the Turkic Republics in Asia.

Congratulations. I only got 97/111 for Europe...I'm useless on all the former USSR states. On the plus side, I just got a perfect score for Africa.

Kind of embarassing since I live in Europe though. Oh well.

i did embarressingly bad on europe (72) and canada (28). I got 149 on US (swiched mississippi and alabama). 29 on south america ( i had to learn them in spanish in high school, but i think some of the countries have changed ). 63 on the middle east, 37 on central america, 26 on the carribean (way too hard), 19 on Australia (though I didn't know any of them), 56 on Africa, and 70 on asia

I got a perfect score on the US, I knew I would. I missed a few in Europe and got an 85. I accidently clicked too close to Netherlands and it gave me Germany, so that shouldn't count. As interested as I am in European history, I had never seen a map of what it looks like now that all those eastern European countries and republics have split and renamed and stuff. When I was in school they were communist and the map sure looked different. But it's better now, and I learned something, and I wanted to! I bet if I looked at it once with the labels I'd never forget. I'll try another one now.

I'm too ADD to finish one right now, but it's already apparent to me that ALL of the European and Asian geography I've managed to retain is from gymnastics.
